How much is a bazillion? Well, according to the dictionary on Merriam-Webster it’s “a huge, unspecified number”. So, with that in mind, Borderlands 3 is now available for purchase on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, and features a huge, unspecified number of firearms.
Borderlands introduced the term “shooter-looter” and became synonymous with cool loot, spectacular boss fights and dirty humour.
With more guns and mayhem than ever before, Borderlands 3 means business. Select from four unique Vault Hunters and unleash havoc upon the scum of Pandora. Customize your hero’s abilities, skills, weapon loadouts, visual appearance and much more.
Complete missions and a plethora of new challenges, meet unusual and downright insane characters. Collect awesome loot to aid you on your quest; from common handguns to legendary firearms that will pulverize even the most stalwart of foes.
Assemble an arsenal of deadly weapons to battle a new threat: the Calypso Twins. Who are they? We don’t know. But they’re twins, so there’s at least two.
Much like its predecessors, Borderlands 3 also features online multiplayer for up to four and a local co-op for up to two players. That’s right, you can still kill giant bosses and collect amazing loot with your buddy or significant other in the same room. It’s just like the good old days when the Xbox sign was greener and games had local co-op. Better yet, regardless of who you play with, the loot will now be tailored to your hero’s level.
